19th Annual “Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour” 2023 (May 6-7)

Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour

Registration for the free, Nineteenth Annual Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour and Green Home Features Showcase is now open. This year there will be four days of inspiration: two days on-line, and two days in- person, and, for the second time the Tour will also showcase green home features.

In-person Tour

The award-winning in-person Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour and Green Home Features Showcase will allow registrants to visit more than fifty beautiful, water-conserving native plant gardens on Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7—from 10:00-5:00. All of the homes have native plant gardens; more than a dozen will be sharing their green home features, such as solar panels and batteries, induction ranges, heat pumps, and more.

Registrants will learn how design a native plant garden for color and interest throughout the year, garden for wildlife, lower their water bills, protect their family’s health and the environment by gardening without using pesticides, and answering questions about electrification.

What’s special about California native plants? They are adapted to our soil and climate, naturally water conserving, and easy to care for. California native plants are better than non-native plants when it comes to attracting native birds, butterflies, and other forms of wildlife. And, as the gardens on the Tour show, these lovely gardens display a sense of place that is uniquely Californian.
